gathering student feedback. The set rep shared their experiences and opinions on the following questions (see attached document for complete information):  To what extent are student’s aware of BCIT’s non-academic conduct expectations?  What are the strength /gaps in BCIT’s response to student non-academic misconduct?  What are the most important things to include in a revised Student Non-Academic Conduct Code? The following was mentioned by the Set Rep:  the ways policies are communicated makes them hard to read,  non-academic Codes of Conduct is not known by the students,  how much control should BCIT have over students’ electronic use in class and on campus (i.e. Using Facebook in class etc.) Set Reps were interested what is the hierarchy among the School rules and Provincial Rules. Set Reps expressed their opinions how better to implement the Code of Conduct. Over the summer, Maggie will use this information, as well as feedback from faculty and staff, to shape the new policy. In the fall, Maggie and Christina will follow up with the new set reps to get more input. Set Reps are asked to present the questions to their sets and have feedback forwarded to Maggie or Christina.
